Improving corrugated board performance

Research and technical development on packaging and corrugated board. The results will help minimize cost and environmental impact through efficient use of energy and biomass resources, maximize volume and quality through production efficiency and runnability, meet societal needs with products made from forest biomass, and enable circular economy.

The market position of corrugated board, as well as for paper-based packaging in general, can be strengthened and expanded by eliminating the weaknesses of these products. Weaknesses include their sensitivity to moisture, limitations in print quality and the deterioration of liner and fluting. We will address these weaknesses by developing new process solutions for the base papers and relevant testing methods for packaging paper, packaging and print properties combined with testing their relevance for conformity to various transportation standards.
